The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) has apprehended seven Pakistani men and detained their boat near the coastal Jakhau town in Kutch, an official said on Saturday.

"A Pakistani boat with seven men on board has been detained after it strayed into Indian waters, yesterday late night. They are being taken to Okha for interrogation," an ICG official said.

The boat was spotted near Jakhau by the patrolling party on board ICG's vessel, 'Meerabai', he said.

`Meerabai' is one of the patrolling boats used by the Indian Coast Guard for sea surveillance in the area.
